10 weeks left in 2010
In my opinion, this week’s meeting was one of the most productive meetings since I have been here. To follow up Monday, and with the push that we are all on to reach our yearly income and production goals, I just wanted to follow up with some basic ideas from Introduction to Business 101. We all have goals and that’s great. However, within these last ten weeks, let’s really dig our teeth into how we are going to reach them with S.M.A.R.T. objectives.
Create S.M.A.R.T. Objectives
Specific- When you are setting your plan; you really want to be as specific as possible. Hit all 6 W’s. Who? What? When? Where? Why? Which? Specific objectives are more likely to be achieved than a general goal.
Measureable- Just like you numerical goal, your objective has to be measurable. To do so, ask: How much? How many? Essentially, you need to know beforehand how you will know when you reached the objective.
Achievable- Objectives have to be attainable and believable. If you can’t achieve them based on the skills or resources, change them!
Realistic- Simply put, are these real to you or a pipedream?
Time-bound- Lastly, put a time stamp on it. Obviously, in this case I have the timeframe for you. 10 weeks left.
Now, set you objectives and hit your goals!
I encourage all of you to work SMART-er, not harder.
